Primary Schools

The Gloucestershire Cricket Board’s (GCB) primary schools programme is designed to give children a fun first taste of cricket.

As well as helping to develop their cricket skills, the sessions improve children’s fundamental movement skills and characteristics including team work, fair play and leadership. The GCB also runs a number of primary competitions and provides teacher training.

We currently work in more than 130 primaries in Gloucestershire each year.

These come in the form of Kwik Cricket competitions where soft balls are used in fully inclusive 8-a-side games. The three competitions are ‘Open’ year 5 &6, where boys ans girls play together, a girls-only tournament and also an ‘open’ Year 3 and 4 competition.

All three competitions take place in Term 6 and include district rounds played at the local cricket clubs, building up to a finals day which is annually hosted by Cheltenham College.
